The Wavy Rule, a Daily Comic by Paul Morris: Dr. No and Dr. I-Couldn't-Agree-More

Paul writes: You’ve seen the billboards for the new Bond film, and maybe, like me, you’ve wondered what the meaning of “Quantum of Solace” is. This was the name of a short story by Sir Ian Fleming, but the plot of the film has no similarity to that of the short story. The name sounds mysterious enough to intrigue moviegoers, I suppose. Beverly Hills Chihuahua, by the way, delivers exactly what you’d expect.

Heh. My favorites are the “date between two physicists,” and Dr. I-Couldn’t-Agree-More.

I love the nonplussed expressions on the faces of the Bond girls.

Thanks, guys!
